What a difference a year can make, huh?

Not only has West Virginia been outstanding at home, they have been borderline dominant. In Morgantown, the Mountaineers are putting up 36.4 points per game offensively, while only surrendering 12.8 points per game on defense. In regulation, West Virginia has yet to allow a team to score more than 17 points on Mountaineer Field. The season prior, however, the story was the exact opposite.
Turning the tides at home this season has been evident that this team is in fact “climbing.” You simply have to take care of business at home, or you will not be successful. While the hope is the fortunes on the road will change in 2021, we can just enjoy the fact that Morgantown is becoming one of the toughest venues in the Big 12.
If Neal Brown can continue to lead his team to such dominant performances at home in the future, the Mountaineers will quickly rise to the top of the Big 12. Rebuilding a program is a step-by-step process, and the massive step taken at Milan Puskar Stadium in 2020 is bigger than many realize.
